Tips to getting your best headshot ever.

Your professional headshot is one of the most important tools you have for your career.

A professional headshot is essential for making a good first impression on your LinkedIn profile or resume.

But what makes a good professional headshot? Here are a few tips:

  1. It should be well-lit. Your headshot should be taken in natural light, if possible. If you must use artificial light, make sure it is soft and flattering.

  2. Your face should be well-lit and in focus. Your headshot should be close-up, so that your face is the main focus of the photo. Make sure your face is in focus and that there is no blurriness.

  3. You should be smiling. A natural smile is always the best option for a professional headshot. A fake smile will look forced and unnatural.

  4. Your background should be neutral. A neutral background, such as a plain wall or a park, will help to focus attention on you. Avoid busy or distracting backgrounds.

  5. You should dress professionally. Choose clothes that are clean, pressed, and appropriate for your industry. Avoid casual clothing or anything too revealing.

Once you have taken your headshot, you can upload it to your LinkedIn profile. Make sure to include a professional-sounding headline and a brief summary of your experience and skills.

Here are some additional tips for taking a good professional headshot:

  • Choose a photographer who specializes in professional headshots. A good photographer will know how to pose you and how to use lighting to create a flattering image.

  • Be prepared to take multiple shots. It's common to take several shots before you find the perfect one. Don't be afraid to ask the photographer to retake a shot if you're not happy with it.

  • Don't be afraid to experiment with different poses. The photographer will be able to guide you, but don't be afraid to try different things until you find a pose that you like.

  • Relax and have fun. The more relaxed you are, the more natural your photos will look. So take a deep breath and enjoy the experience!
